Match Review

Argentina marched into the semi-finals of the ERGO Hockey Junior World Cup. In today’s second quarter-final the Leoncitas beat their Panamerican rivals USA 2-0.

The first half saw hardly any goal scoring chances until the 34th minute, when Argentina won the first penalty corner of the game. Julia Gomes Fantasia took the drag flick and fired the ball into the net to open the scoring. Earlier, Argentina had failed to score when the US girls were short-handed by two players.

Much of the play took place in midfield and both sides struggled to create promising scoring opportunities. With 22 minutes remaining on the clock the Leoncitas won their second penalty corner; this time Gomes Fantasia’s flick was cleared by US defender Kelsey Harbin.

Shortly afterwards, the US girls forced three penalty corners in a row but could not capitalize on any of them. The Leoncitas eventually doubled their lead on 60 minutes thanks to Roberta Werthein securing the 2-0 win. 

Voices after the match:

Agustina Metidieri, ARG player: "We will study our next opponents and then we will hope to win to move on to the finals. I don't have a preferred opponent for the semi-finals." 

Laura Gebhardt, USA team captain: "It was a hard fought game. I think we played very well, but we did not finish hard enough in the circle. I am satisfied with our team performance, yes and no, because we wanted to win, but I think we played very well. Now we have to keep fighting."
